Using ABE for Medical Data Protection in Fog Computing
Fog is an extension of the cloud computing paradigm, developed to fix the clouds latency, especially for applications requiring a very short response time, such as e-health applications. However, these applications also require a high level of data confidentiality, hence the need to apply appropriate encryption techniques, which can ensure security needs, while respecting the characteristics of the infrastructures devices. In this article, we will focus on ABE encryption, through the work done to study its applicability in the cloud and the Internet of things, as well as the improvements that can be made to adapt it to the fog computing environment.
